Title: Exploring the dithiocarbamate route via the synthesis of poly (2,5-thienylene vinylene) derivates
Authors: Diliën, Hanne

Abstract: Poly(thienylene vinylene) polymers seem to be very promising materials for application in solar cells. Because of their low band gap behaviour, their absorption spectrum resembles better the emission spectrum of the sun than commonly used materials as poly(phenylene vinylene) (PPV). In this thesis the synthesis, polymerization and solar cell behaviour of PTV materials have been investigated. All these materials have been made via the dithiocarbamate precursor route, which was previously developed in our research group. For this dithiocarbamate route, the polymerization step has been optimized and the conversion step has been studied extensively. All the chapters (except for chapter 1 and 8) are presented as a manuscript for publication. ...
